There’s Nothing Like Australia winner announced

You may recall that Tourism Australia launched an advertising campaign recently (see our previous blog) in which they asked everyday Australians to promote their favourite holiday spots.

Well the winners of the competition have now been announced.  The state finalists won a $5000 holiday and the overall winner a $25,000 holiday for their photo entry with 25 words to explain why “There’s Nothing Like” a particular spot.

This was the overall winning entry:

There’s nothing like going on the back of a camel at dawn to see the sunrise in the heart of my beloved Australia – Uluru.
